the implementation of the notorious federal health care law. >> reporter: ken cuccinelli the personification of the tea party. the polls say he is going to lose. his demise in virginia could be a sign of things to come. >> all right, joining me now is congressman gerry connolly, a democrat from virginia. congressman, thank you for taking some time tonight. i want to get to that election in virginia and what it says about where the country is and where the country is going, it's only five days away. but first i want to start at the basic issue of the poll numbers for the president today, which made so much news today. you heard that repetition in the package we just played there. george bush territory, the idea that here in his fifth year as president, president obama now falling to a level about where george w. bush was at this point in his fifth year. what do you make of the numbers you're seeing for the president right now, just as a democrat, as a member of his party, what do you attribute it to and are you worried about it? >> you know, i think every president has a rough patch. i'm old
we go with mcauliffe where ken cuccinelli could have run away with this race. >> this is like the bonapartes making maximillan emperor of mexico. this is a reach by the clintons. they take a guy, a good guy, mcauliffe, and put him into virginia. it's an extraordinary success. he's a very likeable guy but the clintons will get a lot of credit for this. this is the first big pin on the map. we've got virginia next time. >> do you think this is the tale of where the republican party is going and chris christie will become the national story? >> i have a dog in this race. i want the republican party to return to its roots. it will always have a very hard right part to it but i think it's got to rebuild its center. i think with christie they have a good shot at rebuilding the old new york and pennsylvania and new jersey republican party, the party that used to be a centrist party. they need to have that wing up there. it takes two wings, and that centrist wing has to be rebuilt, i think. >> chris matthews, great to have you here, be sure to watch "hardball" at 7:00 p.m. tonight i g
candidate. nominate the right candidates. >> ken cuccinelli may be able to -- i don't know, anna, did you see that? >> yeah. i've seen polls all over the place. i'm sure that the government shutdown issue hurt cuccinelli. i'm also sure what's happening with obama care is at some point hurting mcauliffe as well. so yes, i have seen polls as tight as seven points, five points. and others that have it as broad as 12 points and so, we're yet to see, look, you never know until election day and until you figure out what voters came out. if the democrat voters get overconfident, it could be very bad for them. >> go ahead, lz. >> i was going to say, it is important to note that virginia is a very special case. there is a very volatile civil war happening within the gop in that particular state. ken cuccinelli kind of did some shady stuff. they didn't didn't have a primary there, they add convention. the tea party and conservative christians took the tea party instead of a natural democratic process. what you mentioned before, anna, they are purple. in the primary process, it doesn't matter which
president obama said earlier today when he was trying to link ken cuccinelli to all republicans for the shut down. >> you've seen an e treem faction of the republican party that has been shown again and again and again that they're willing to hijack the entire party and the country and the economy and grind progress to absolute halt if they don't get a hundred percent of what they want. now this snts just speculation. we just saw it last month. here, in virginia, you felt the pain of the first government shutdown in 17 years. >> now, what's interesting about president obama's remarks, is that he didn't mention obama care at all. now, on the other side of the aisle, republicans have been trying to hammer all democrats over obama care and ken cuccinelli has been campaigning with a number of high-profile americans and talking about that. and ken cuccinelli says if you like obama care, you should vote now. democrats say that they've been leading in the polls and terry mcauliffe has led every single pole in this case since july. they think that their side works and they plan on circulating some o
's the front-runner right now. president didn't waste any time linking ken cuccinelli to the national tea party. >> you've seen an extreme faction of the republican party that has shown again and again and again that they are willing to hijack the entire party and the country and the economy and grind progress to an absolute halt if they don't get 100% of what they want. if you embrace the very politics that led to this shutdown, i guarantee you it's not in the rear view mirror of voters in virginia they remember. they understand that that is not how you govern and that is not how you move america forward. >> cuccinelli's campaign predicted president obama's visit would energize be republican voters outraged over the obama care rollout exchanges. terry mcauliffe leads cuccinelli by 12 points. >> that's a big gap. >> that's massive. >> we'll see. okay. are we going to go to toronto or should we wait until little center i think we'll do it after the break. you all haven't been that well behaved. >> let's smoke. >> no. let's not. that's bad. >> help me out, willie. >> terry wins this race. christi
as a hard shock to the republicans who were hoping that ken cuccinelli would take the race. but his hard line positions have come under scrutiny and virginia voters seem to be rejecting them. so that combined with you have a very liberal candidate in new york, bill de blasio, will win the mayor's race there. and in new jersey you have a moderate republican who has made a point to reject some of the hard line republican positions that are sort of taking place in the national debate. i think when you look at all of that, it's probably good news for democrats and moderate republicans. but that certainly will sort of lay a marker for next year. and so i think what you'll look at at that point is how much sort of the backlash from the tea party and that sort of movement and what is going on with congress right now plays against what will happen in this election. i think it will be interesting to see. >> let's move on to this new book that is out, called double down, this washington tell-all and it claims the obama administration toyed with the idea of swapping out joe biden with hillary clint
auliffe is facing off against republican ken cuccinelli. the gop has built a race as a referendum on obama care. phil deblasio has been the first democrat to lead new york city since 1989. polls have given him huge leads over republican joe lhota. in new jersey, governor chris christie is hoping for a second term. democrat barbara buono has painted christie as someone who wants to be president not governor. a new poll gives christi with a 19-point lead. and a more that 60-point advantage with independents. >>> if you tried logging onto the obama care health care exchange this morning, you probably noticed it was offline. operators temporarily shut down the site in attempt to make improvements sunday. mitt romney said the fiasco is rotting president obama's second term. >> perhaps the most important lesson the president, i think, failed to learn was, you have to tell the american people the truth. and when he told the american people that you can keep your health insurance if you wanted to keep that plan, period, he said that time and again. >> right. >> he wasn't telling the truth. >> but gover
, this is amazing. terry mcauliffe, the democrat, is outspending the republican ken cuccinelli by 25-1 on the air waves. >> we read so much stuff in the middle of the night, so i never know if i'm dreaming or not. did i see a poll in the middle of the night that said ken cuccinelli is tightening the race in a poll or two or not? >> tightening, sure. we have talked to both campaigns. there was a poll a couple days ago that showed it much tighter. the cuccinelli internal polls do not show it tightening that much. the campaigns believe it's an outlier that terry mcauliffe is cruising to an easy win. you never know. they go to the horse races because they come in and close the gap. >> terry mcauliffe seems like an outsider for the state of virginia. look at ken cuccinelli, who is very, very conservative. some would say too conservative right now for the state. these are the type of races in off years where you wake up and you go holy cow, that just happened? >> there's a third party candidate. newspapers supporting none of the three. it is a wild situation. >> it is a wild situation. do a lot of the

in a very blue state and there are lessons to be learned. alternately, if we look at virginia, ken cuccinelli is probably more likely going to lose. >> according to polls. >> right, according to polls. very conservative candidate. so i think a lot of people will be watching and seeing what lessons they can take away. >> bill, do you think ideology is an important part of the virginia race? >> sure, but i think he didn't run a good campaign. he was very much hurt by the governor, who was very popular. it's made it hard for the campaign to raise ethics issues which are certainly there to be raised. cuccinelli has closed some and is now running on obama care, probably should have done that earlier. he's been critical of it, he wants to limit the effect of it in virginia. terry mcauliffe embraced obama care. if this race closes down to five, four points, or possibly a tie or tiny victory tomorrow, that will show how potent obama care is. but i'm told by people, i talked to people close to the campaign, they do think the obama care thing is cutting in their favor. it may be a little too

back as they go forward. if you have chris christie win in new jersey, ken cuccinelli lose in virginia, a lot of people will say the tea party candidate cuccinelli took beating and the guy that sometimes sticks in the eye of the tea party won big. >> there is a message to be learned there. the president was if virginia campaigning for terry mcauliffe the democratic candidate this weekend. he said the outcome will say a lot for virginia's future and about the country's future. but i do wonder if that is necessarily the case. because both parties will not be picking the presidential nominee for some three years. as we always say, there is a lot that can happen between now and then. >> there is a lot that can happen between now and then. if you want to put the party demographics and the rising of the latino population or youth population in northern virginia, the college educated people around the pentagon, if you look at a state like virginia, it is one of the places, if we were having this conversation ten years ago, the fact that a democrat could have a success would be a surprise. vir
